28 Jul Choosing the Right Desk for your Home Office
When you’re setting up your home office careful consideration is needed with choosing the right desk, as it needs to be both practical and aesthetically pleasing. It’s a piece of furniture that you’ll be spending a lot of time with so it’s important that you pick the right one for your home office – it will make a huge difference to your comfort and productivity.
There’s a lot to think about, and with so many different desk options to choose from, it can be difficult knowing where to begin, and what to look for. So, we’ve put together a few tips to help you choose a desk for your home taking into account home interior, budget and requirements:
What size office desk do I need?
The size of the office desk you purchase will depend largely on what type of work you’ll be using your desk for and the size restrictions of your office. For example, if you are a graphic or web designer and require extra space to draw, you’ll need something that has a large surface area.
Before purchasing your desk, plan out the space and think about where you’re going to position your desk, considering the location of light, windows/doors and other pieces of furniture in your office.
Once you’ve decided where you’re going to place your desk, you’ll need to measure this area to see how much space you have to fit your desk in. When thinking about the size, you need to remember to leave room for your office chair and any additional storage to allow enough space for you to comfortably move around your office.
The UCLIC desk range is specifically designed for the home available in 2 width options 800mm and 1200mm.
Shape and Style
When choosing what shape and style you want for your office desk you there are a number of topics that go into making the final decision, for example; available space, storage needs, working practices and also the design and style of the room.
